Labor Advocates Make Aggressive Push for PRO Act

A pro-union group called Our Revolution, created by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has launched a nationwide tour in support of federal legislation that would impose unprecedented measures to expand union membership and influence.

The Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act) — opposed by the OMA, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and other business organizations — would eliminate the secret ballot in union elections; limit the use of independent contractors; and permit unions to access private employee data, among other things.

A representative of Our Revolution told Politico that “there’s an army coming together that’s ready to make the PRO Act the law of the land.” OMA members are encouraged to use this NAM tool to communicate with their federal representatives regarding the PRO Act. 12/8/2021
